This is a delicious summer salad and the caper vinaigrette is a wonderful addition with the sweet strawberries and the salty halloumi. This cheese is very high in fat so keep the portions small but this is a gorgeous starter for 2 on a summer day.

4 pieces of halloumi about 1cm thick
tsp flour
salt and pepper

Handful of strawberries hulled and sliced

Dressing
1 garlic clove peeled and chopped
1 tbsp flat leaf parsley chopped
1tbsp wholegrain mustard
2tsp capers drained
juice of an 1/2 an orange
2tbsp balsamic vinegar
3tbsp olive oil

Whisk the vinaigrette ingredients together and set aside
dust the halloumi in flour, season and fry in oil over a high heat until golden on both sides
Serve the halloumi with the strawberries and the vinaigrette drizzled on top.
Delicious!
